On behalf of the HCBA Diversity and Inclusion Committee

The HCBA Diversity and Inclusion Committee would like to invite you to a unique event entitled, 13th: From Slave to Criminal with One Amendment? A Movie and Popcorn… and a Meaningful Discussion of an Important Amendment.

At this event, we will be viewing Ava DuVernay’s new documentary “13th,” which is the only documentary to ever open the New York Film Festival.  Since its debut at the 2016 festival, the documentary has aired on Netflix to critical acclaim.  It will form a dynamic backdrop for a discussion by the Bench and the Bar about important issues confronting the criminal justice system and race relations.  Following the movie, we will have a thought-provoking panel share their views of the issues raised in the movie, as well as to engage the audience in a further discussion. 

We would love for you to not only participate in the discussion but to invite your friends and colleagues as well.  The event flyer is attached.  The cost of the event is free but please register through the HCBA here to reserve your space.
